We are a small school with high interest from prospective families, and we have designed our application and enrollment process to make the best use of the resources and time of prospective families and the school. The first place to learn more about Great River before visiting us is our website. This introductory video will provide an overview of the program. Our Head of School Blog can offer insight into the way our philosophy and values shape our culture as a school.

2017-18 Application for Enrollment and Waiting List
If you decide you are interested in Great River School, the next step is to complete the 2017-18 Application for Enrollment. You must submit a separate application for each student. If you applied last year and are currently on the 2016-17 waiting list, you will need to apply again for next year to be included on the 2017-18 waiting list. This application takes less than five minutes to complete and does not obligate you to accept an enrollment offer. Applying to the waiting list is the best way to keep in touch with us, and have an opportunity to enroll at Great River School. The 2017-18 lottery was held on March 9, 2017. View the 2017-18 Waiting List here.
Visiting Great River
After researching Great River and completing an application, we recommend that you wait for the lottery to see if your child will receive an enrollment offer or be placed on our wait list. We are a small school with a limited number of openings each year. We find that it is the best use of our resources and your time to wait until families know the chances of receiving an enrollment offer before you invest time and energy attending tours or open houses.
Following the lottery, we will invite families of students who are offered enrollment in Great River School and those at the top of the waitlist to Info Nights and Tours of the school. These families will be able to attend an open house and schedule a tour, and adolescent students may be given the opportunity to shadow in our program for a day.
Tours will be offered during Spring 2017 by invitation only to those likely to receive an enrollment offer.
Observe Elementary Classrooms
We are currently limiting classroom observations to educators or families who have been offered enrollment through the lottery.
